The Rings On My Hand

are my
spiritual brand
my identity
as people
understand .
of a cosmic force
ebb and flow
of life and death
where i stand
the plethora
of confusion
my mind
as wastelands

God Gave Woman A Raw Deal

from the
time she came
into the womb
her fate was
sealed ..destroyed
as a foetus unwanted
her destiny blood
congealed .. older
married harassed
burnt alive her life
a cartwheel.. a wheel
within a wheel -single
molested raped
brutalized murdered
an object of desire
her eternal ordeal
created out of fire
her pain only she
could feel..yet
as a mother
she has the
power to create
to heal..woman
a goddess a door mat
fragile yet made of desire
her usp her sex appeal
slithery as a serpent
faster than a eel
in a veil.. hidden
as a mystery
her true self
she conceals
mans soul
her stiletto
high heels

Amma Woh Raste Pe Kyon So Raha Hai

kisi dusre
mard ke
bhag gayi
woh apni
pe ro raha ghar
ka ne ghat
ka woh ek
zinda lash
apni kabar
mai so
raha hai

Dreams Die Young

he tried
to cut
his wrist
his lungs
tried to
from a fan
but it was
'not his day
to die alive
he was flung
the silhouette
of his deleted
dreams the
covert silence
of his tongue
ashes to ashes
dung to dung

lag gaya
aa maut
mar mujhe
main zindagi
se tang

Dam Madar Beda Par...

Kids At Bandra Slums Mercy of God When The Rains Come

running helter skelter
for safety from sharp
needles of pain
oh to be in mumbai
when it rains
clogged gutters
overflowing drains
in the slums
water water water
no more complaints
mother in law gets
the fits son in law
faints wife screaming
amma amma
someone has stolen
my golden chain
a crowd gathers
as it happens
everywhere in
india ..police comes
people chew their brains
this world is mad house
even kids are born insane

madness is humanity
till death do us apart
is what .. eternally
remains binding
body to spirit
the glory of
mumbai rains
